Top David Bell News

  • Browns' David Bell: Available Sunday

    Bell (knee) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Steelers, Chris Easterling of The Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    The second-year wide receiver out of Purdue went from limited practice sessions both Wednesday and Thursday to a full go Friday, and it now seems as if he's been able to move past his knee issue. Bell has not been heavily involved in the Browns' offense thus far, catching four of his seven targets on the year for 33 yards.

  • Browns' David Bell: Gets back on field

    Bell (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Bell hasn't practiced since initially suffering the injury and has missed each of the Browns' last two games. His return to the field is a step in the right direction as he works to get back in action Sunday against the Steelers. However, he is currently considered questionable for the contest.

  • Browns' David Bell: Won't play at Baltimore

    Bell (knee) is out for Sunday's game at the Ravens, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Bell will miss his second straight game in Week 10 as he works through a knee injury. Rookie third-rounder Cedric Tillman should continue to see a heavy workload in Bell's absence.

  • Browns' David Bell: Misses another practice

    Bell (knee) did not participate in Thursday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    The second-year wideout recorded back-to-back DNPs during Wednesday's and Thursday's practices, and it seems increasingly likely that he'll miss his second consecutive game this Sunday. Bell has made seven appearances for the Browns this season, logging 33 yards on four receptions.

  • Browns' David Bell: Not practicing Wednesday

    Bell (knee) will not participate at practice Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Bell sustained a knee injury Sunday versus Arizona, and he's now sidelined to start Cleveland's new week of practice. He'll likely have to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a chance to suit up in Week 10.

  • Browns' David Bell: Won't play Sunday

    Bell (knee) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Mary Kay Cabot of reports.

    The second-year receiver out of Purdue recorded consecutive DNPs during practice Wednesday and Thursday, so it's not a surprise that he's been ruled out ahead of Sunday's contest. With Bell missing time, rookie wideout Cedric Tillman could see an uptick in work in Cleveland's offense.

  • Browns' David Bell: Misses practice Wednesday

    Bell (knee) did not participate in Wednesday's practice session, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Bell has played 19 snaps -- six on offense and 13 on special teams -- over the past two games after getting extended action in Week 6 against the 49ers. If he's unable to improve over the course of the week, Cedric Tillman could be in line for more opportunities at wide receiver behind Amari Cooper, Elijah Moore and Marquise Goodwin.

  • Browns' David Bell: Three targets in win

    Bell caught one of three targets for six yards in Sunday's 19-17 win over San Francisco.

    There was less competition for snaps at wideout as Cedric Tillman (hip) was unavailable, but it didn't result in increased usage for Bell. He played 10 snaps, which is exactly his average through five games. If there's a positive take-away it's that Bell was targeted for the first time since Week 2, and his lone catch converted a fourth-and-4 during a fourth-quarter drive that led to one of four Dustin Hopkins field goals.

  • Browns' David Bell: No catches in Week 3

    Bell played nine snaps and was not targeted in Sunday's 27-3 win over Tennessee.

    Quarterback Deshaun Watson focused his attention on Amari Cooper and Elijah Moore in what was his best game since joining the Browns. Any looks left over for other wideouts went to Donovan Peoples-Jones, as Marquise Goodwin and Cedric Tillman joined Bell among the untargeted. Barring injury ahead of him on the depth chart, Bell's role doesn't seem likely to increase.

  • Browns' David Bell: More activity Week 2

    Bell caught all three targets for 27 yards in Monday's 26-22 loss to Pittsburgh in Week 2.

    Bell was on the field for 11 offensive snaps, only one more than last week, but was given more looks from quarterback Deshaun Watson. The quarterback made it point to get most of his receivers involved early with first-quarter targets.

  • Browns' David Bell: Targeted once in opener

    Bell did not catch his lone target in Sunday's 24-3 win over Cincinnati in Week 1.

    Bell was on the field for 10 plays, the same number as rookie Cedric Tillman and veteran Marquise Goodwin. The trio will make up the second tier behind Amari Cooper, Elijah Moore and Donovan Peoples-Jones. Cleveland leaned on its ground game during a rainy afternoon in Ohio, so there were limited targets for depth receivers.

  • Browns' David Bell: Limited to one grab Thursday

    Bell secured one of two targets for seven yards in the Browns' 18-18 tie with the Eagles on Thursday night.

    Bell recorded his one catch on Cleveland's opening drive, and his production represented a notable downturn from the 3-33-1 line he generated versus the Commanders during the Browns' second preseason game this past Saturday. The 2022 third-round pick was outperformed Thursday by multiple competitors for a reserve receiver role, so the team's road preseason finale against the Chiefs on Saturday, Aug. 26 is likely to be critical for Bell's fortunes.

  • Browns' David Bell: Hauls in TD against Commanders

    Bell caught three of four targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason loss to the Commanders.

    After a disappointing rookie season, Bell saw the Browns add Elijah Moore via trade in the offseason before the team selected Cedric Tillman in the third round of the 2023 NFL Draft, so the pressure is on the Purdue product to step up. Bell did just that Friday, hauling in a seven-yard TD strike from Dorian Thompson-Robinson near the end of the third quarter. While a camp battle with Tillman for the No. 4 spot on the depth chart isn't what Bell envisioned when he was taken in the third round in 2022, Moore did leave Friday's contest early with a rib injury. If the issue lingers into the regular season, both depth wideouts could take on bigger roles in Week 1.

  • Browns' David Bell: Two grabs in Thursday's win

    Bell brought in both targets for six yards during the Browns' 21-16 preseason win over the Jets in Thursday night's Hall of Fame Game.

    The 2022 third-round pick tied with several teammates for third in receptions on the night, but all of Bell's yardage actually came on one catch. The 24-year-old logged a team-high 236 snaps out of the slot last season and was in on 493 plays from scrimmage overall across 16 games, but he had a modest 24-214 line to show for it. The Purdue product is fighting to carve out a spot on the latter portion of the Browns' receiver depth chart, and he was notably outperformed by rookie third-round selection Cedric Tillman, one of his primary competitors, on Thursday. Bell will aim to make up ground during Cleveland's second preseason tilt, a home clash against the Commanders a week from Friday.
